I sure hope you can, Lisa. I'm probably putting my old-movie-buff credentials on the line by admitting it, but I've never seen that film.

Dracula 1931, was renewed in 1958. Copyright is still good.

Phooey. I guess I'm not surprised; rare is the popular, quality film that ends up PD. But hope sprang eternal. :)

I believe all the old universal thirties and forties horror still are copyrighted by universal, there were a post about creature from the black lagune not so long ago.

But they can be bought extremely cheap on dvd, at least here in Denmark.

Universal now has copyright for Paramount studios productions pre 1948, when they were sold to MCA which later merged with Universal, they are very reluctant to release these films to dvd, particularly pre code material which is a shame. Paramount had a style all its own, unlike any other studio even the programmers are interesting.
